Well, with all the crap on the roads, thought I'd defer my ride a week and go for the 13th. Offerring to organise a ride in some of the best twisties on the SE side of Melbourne IMHO. Suggesting a route something like Rowville, Lillydale, Yarraglen and up the Melba highway to the top of Kinglake, right down Myer-Chum creek road, Heallsville, Black Spur, Coffee at Marysville then Reefton(option for Lake Mountain loop), Warburton (maybe a quick blat up Donna Buang lookout if time is good then cruise back into Melbourne. Not sure but suspect this would be 230-250km from start point. This adds up to 191km round trip from Lillydale by Melways numbers. Additional stops planned as requested. [I'll make a call based on skill level of likely participants later] Designated fuel point would be Warburton ( full tanks should give everyone enough). Emergency fuel at Healsville for the forgetful! I'd like a 9am start latest with anticipated return early afternoon ( 2'ish?). Happy to open to all levels ( I class myself intermediate) and will accomodate learners and beginners as long as they are confident at highway speeds and through the twisties. Would like to get a feel for attendance and then will formalise the event early next week (when the weather forecast is a bit closer to reality). Please post interest on this thread with your skill level (learner, beginner, interm, advanced) and any amendments to the route you'd like to see! P.S. I don't do rain or anything resembling moisture on the roads.
